AT St Hilda’s ju­nior school, class sizes are small enough for staff to know and care for your child as an in­di­vid­ual, says head of ju­nior school An­drea McNally.

“We have the time and re­sources to sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of the whole child,” she said.

St Hilda’s of­fers three classes of up to 24 stu­dents for Years 5 and 6 with spe­cial­ist pro­grams in French, art, phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, mu­sic and out­door ed­u­ca­tion de­signed to give your daugh­ter a seam­less tran­si­tion to se­nior school in Year 7.

The school un­der­stands learn­ing is not just lim­ited to the class­room which is why na­ture ped­a­gogy is also in­cluded in the cur­ricu­lum.

The en­vi­able space the ju­nior school boasts al­lows stu­dents to ben­e­fit from learn­ing out­doors in the newly opened state-of-the-art na­ture play ar­eas.

There is also a myr­iad of co-cur­ric­u­lar pro­grams on of­fer for out-of-school hours, in­clud­ing speech and drama, Net­ball Club, Minkey, Fit­ness Club, de­bat­ing, band and or­ches­tra, knitting, cook­ing, Sus­tain­abil­ity Club and Art Club.

Your child can be a part of the St Hilda’s dif­fer­ence.
